Title: Interrelation between rheumatic and dermatological diseases: from laboratory to clinical practice
Rheumatology and Dermatology have a wide spectrum of clinical diseases that are commonly seen in primary care. Early recognition and adequate evaluation are key factors for prognosis and adequate referral. They are a crescent specialty worldwide, although it is usually an elective rotation in many medical programs.
The Department of Medicine of our Institution offers the opportunity to international medical students to share a unique approach of systemic and skin diseases, facilitating education across disciplines. In addition, the Department aims to share their experience in diagnosing and treating common diseases in the southeastern region of the country.
This workshop will focus on clinical principles of Rheumatology and Dermatology, tropical diseases, autoimmune/inflammatory diseases, and skin cancer, intermingled with histopathology, immunology, and basic science concepts.
1. Discuss an interrelation between rheumatologically and dermatological diseases from a clinical and immunological perspective.
